I just heard the promo for this on the radio. There are at least a couple quality acts on the docket, plus this will bring some decent crowds to an area really not yet used for this sort of thing.

Can't wait to see "Classic Rock Band" on August 11! I remember those guys opening up for Foghat back in '74...

Sorry, Dougw...

Of course, I'll be there on June 23 to hear my husband on the drums playing with Thornetta Davis.

Bummer that Grand Funk Railroad is without Mark Farner.

Who remember the WRIF High Noon Concerts at Hart Plaza.

So...they're gonna jam everyone onto their pretty new facade rather than use the stage and seating RIGHT NEXT DOOR IN HART PLAZA?!

WTF? Nail down some killer acts then make us stretch to view them play?!

Doesn't make a whole lotta sense to me...except the part where they don't have to interact with the city except to buy a few more police for crowd control.

Plus, these will be the WINDIEST concerts ever staged in the city, that stretch of the riverfront consistently has the strongest gusts as the breezes are shaped, amplified, and guided by the RenCen.

A few times I almost couldn't jog against them...

Yeah...that's why this is a first. Kind of a strange idea. I'm just glad because this is the first time I can remember wcsx doing something like this in the city.

I remember Art In America playing at the High Noon Concerts. Always took the E. Warren bus downtown as I was to young to drive. Didn't the Dick the Bruiser Band play the High Noon's as well?

I cannot seem to find the Campus Martius schedule, which I thought was coming out yesterday.
Anyone?

High Noon Concert series audio, circa 1982:

Motor City Rock's Web Site

BSA, The Look, Toby Redd, Bruiser Band, Marshall Crenshaw, etc.

Pretty sweet sound. Time to Move was a kick ass jam.
